Social media really just locks people into a single frame of
reference. In Brain Wash, we really call for this idea of
rekindling cognitive empathy which is a function of the prefrontal
cortex because the more we lock into the amygdala by being on
social media that looks at just one perspective the more we don't
get a good night's sleep, the more we eat inflammatory foods, the
less we exercise, the less we engage in nature, and the less we
meditate. - Dr. David Perlmutter

Power Quotes From The
The Modern World Is Hijacking Our Health
"Our ability to make good decisions to live healthier lives has
been sabotaged by our modern world. Our brains tend to get locked
into acting impulsively using an area of the brain called the
amygdala and it's happening more and more with our shortsighted
behaviors from eating sugar and junk food to staying up late
binge-watching Netflix. We do whatever it is that's not necessarily
in our best interest but we do it because we don't have the ability
many times to access the other part of the brain, the prefrontal
cortex, that allows us to basically allow the adult back into the
room and help us with our decision making." - Dr. David
The Teeter Totter Between Inflammation & Neuroplasticity
"What works directly against neuroplasticity and neurogenesis,
the growth of new brain cells, is inflammation. Whatever we do that
increases inflammation will tend to make it more difficult for us
to engage neuroplasticity. We really want to do our best in order
to allow our brains to rewire to do everything we can to offset
inflammation. What enhances inflammation that we need to be aware
of? Well, we know that there are plenty of foods that are
pro-inflammatory; hyper-processed, ultra-processed, simple carbs,
bad fats, omega 6s, etc. Not just a bad diet but also plenty of
influence from medications such as antibiotics, acid-blocking
drugs, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs; the list contains more
than a thousand but lifestyle habits do fan the flames of
inflammation." - Dr. David Perlmutter
Why Sleep Is So Underrated
"Even one night of non-restorative sleep is associated with a
dramatic uptick in inflammation markers in our bodies and as much
of a 60% increase in activity in the amygdala. If it seems like we
talk about sleep quite a bit, guess what - there's a good reason.
Sleep is so underrated and it's such a powerful on-ramp for better
health. In Brain Wash, we talk about it perhaps being the
most important on-ramp these days towards reducing inflammation,
reducing cortisol, and regaining a connection to the prefrontal
cortex and really rebalancing the immune system." - Dr.
